LEF Lab’s Mission
LEF’s mission statement is to produce, structure and disseminate knowledge by developing high-quality services that ensure customer satisfaction. As it contributes to their client’s scientific and economic operations, LEF also offers quality consulting and regulatory support. GrowerIQ’s partnership with LEF Lab is built around facilitating user processes such as traceability and online documentation, using their expertise in experimental production and digital documentation.
As Portugal develops its legislative medicinal cannabis framework and expands possibilities for would-be licensees, LEF is centrally placed to provide GMP, GDP, and GACP consultancy and training. They can also help cannabis businesses in developing custom SOPs and technical documentation, as well as preparing them for inspections, and internal audits. Thanks to the company’s expertise in various areas, LEF is able to conduct these operations for clients at all levels, from larger growers looking to create new ranges of products to smaller-scale producers focused on craft grows. They can also assist companies in the development of cannabis-based formulations to achieve improved bioavailability, accuracy, and efficacy. LEF assures quality all throughout the production phase through across all types of products, from the seed to the finished product.
LEF’s knowledge in the cannabis field stems from its length of service in the pharmaceutical field. From pre-formulation studies to tangible product development, LEF offers pivotal services in getting new products authorized on the market. Their expertise in dealing with the regulatory authorities and the Portuguese pharmacovigilance (drug safety) system adequately prepares stakeholders for regulatory scrutiny and makes the production process as seamless as possible.
